NH ACLU: A School “Walkout” is NOT Protected Speech

I wonder where this handy bit of information was when the Marxist Women’s March folks were pouring outside money into their national campaign to waste taxpayer dollars. It says that School Walk Outs are NOT protected by the first amendment. However, a school walkout is not considered the same type of speech as wearing a …

Yet another Teacher makes it known that kids don’t belong to their parents.

The US Left now believes that children belong to the community and not to their parents (the latest really public outburst was by Progressive Dr. Melissa Harris-Perry of MSNBC that I posted here).  A while ago now, I was up in Moultonborough during a School Board meeting and there I saw a first hand account …

Privatize the public school system and shift the educators, staff, maintenance, and transportation and facility costs off the books, along with converting public benefits and pensions into the same kind of programs the rest of the private markets have, and you would see property tax rates plummet.

A Modest (Budget Cutting) Proposal

The Unions are always in a “partnership” with the town and the residents when it comes to increasing labor and administrative costs but seem to avoid bearing any of that burden when the economy reduces the values of residents homes, eliminates taxpayer jobs, or cuts their wages.

Lube Job Redux

It’s been fun to watch the Soap Opera unfold after AIDS Services got caught up in a kerfuffle over ‘sex kits’ distributed at Monadnock High School.
